How to Properly Communicate With Your Plastic Surgeon

It can be easy to walk into any store and get persuaded into buying the latest toy or the latest fragrance, however when it comes to something a bit more serious, like your facial appearance, it’s important to not be persuaded into doing anything that you’re just not certain about. However, because plastic surgeons can’t read minds (hard to imagine) it’s important to strongly communicate to them what kind of results you are looking for. Read on to learn more.

One of the best ways to communicate with your plastic surgeon about what you want is by showing them pictures. For instance, if you are going in for a rhinoplasty, find a bunch of images of noses that you like and see if your doctor can match it— that way both you and your doctor feel confident regarding what the outcome will look like.weinstein1

Show Them Pictures

Discuss Your Problem Areas

If for some reason you just aren’t entirely sure of what you want, communicate with your surgeon the problem areas you have. For instance, you have an abundance of stomach fat or you want larger, fuller looking breasts— whatever it is, be sure to point out all of the problem areas you have— that way, your surgeon can go to work with fixing those areas.

Talk About the Outcome

As one of the best communication tools, it’s important to discuss what kind of outcome you are looking for with getting this surgery done. For instance, perhaps you want larger, fuller looking breasts or you want a subtle nose job that not even your grandmother would be able to notice. Communicate these things in detail to your plastic surgeon.

By following the above three tips, you can properly communicate with your plastic surgeon and get the best results possible. To learn more about plastic surgery or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today!
